|Drupalcon Chicago 2011 - Workbench: Managing Content Management - Robin Barre,Colleen Carroll,Ken Rickard|
Our clients often come to Drupal with expectations about the features of a content management system (CMS). In many cases, Drupal handles the features they expect. However, not all editorial tools are a part of Drupal Core, and Drupal has addressed these tools with various contributed modules. As a result, Drupal’s editorial space generally lacks a consistent workflow and interface. At DrupalCON San Francisco, Palantir.net outlined the opportunities we saw for improving content management work...

|Drupalcon Chicago 2011 - Scaling the Drupal Community - Angie Byron, Greg Dunlap|
At Drupalcon Copenhagen, our fearless leader posed the question, "What would happen if Drupal grew 10x larger?" This session will attempt to explore the Drupal community angle of that question. Our community has already seen exponential growth–in 5 years Drupal.org has gone from ~25,000 to ~1,000,000 members–and it can be baffling (and a little terrifying) to think of the community growing bigger still...

|DrupalCon Chicago 2011 - Show Me The Money! - Liza Kindred, Eric Gundersen, James Walker, Matt Westgate|
For DrupalCon San Francisco, I polled the top Drupal shops to find out what they charge and shared the results in my session & online through Lullabot's blog. The results were eye-opening, and in some cases, mind-blowing! Let's open that door even further. I've been crafting a much more comprehensive pricing survey that includes all sizes and pedigrees of Drupal shops (as well as freelancers). I'll share the results, and in this session, we'll hear from a panel of people at each level of pricing...

|DrupalCon Chicago 2011 - Git Phase Next: The Promised Land - Derek Wright, Angie Byron, Sam Boyer|
At DrupalCon San Francisco, we presented a panel discussion entitled The exodus: leading Drupal out of CVS where we introduced the effort to migrate Drupal.org from CVS to Git.

|DrupalCon Chicago 2011 - Getting early estimates right - Jakob Persson|
Almost all clients who approach you about a project want to know up front what the total cost will be. They hand you some loose notes and expect a fixed number of hours or price. To many this presents an impossible task. What is often forgotten is that an exact estimate isn't expected. What you need to produce is one that is accurate enough to close the sale.

The problem isn't insurmountable, though: by applying what we know of real-world ecology to Drupal, we can better understand the problem, gain insights into our own community, and identify important coping strategies...

What makes a module extensible? What is that vague extra something that turns merely extensible code into an API, a library, and a cornerstone of other systems? How do we harness that power for ourselves? Let us examine the Aphorisms of Good API design, and the 8-Fold Path of API Nirvana...

|DrupalCon Chicago 2011 - Lessons From Drupal 3 - Ken Rickard|
A few months ago, on a dare, some of us tried to install and run the earliest version of Drupal that we could still checkout from CVS. For my test, I installed Drupal 3.0.2, which was released on 26 November 2001. Note quite ten years old. What is fascinating about looking at the Drupal 3 release is just how much the Drupal 7 architecture has changed -- and just how much it has not. There are even points in the code where modern debates (such as those over Object Oriented programming) are clearl...

Drupal as a platform is exploding. The way organizations plan and build sites no longer fit neatly into one domain, one design, one set of users, or one site. As Drupal moves further into government and the "enterprise" market, it is no longer being built (or sold) as a single site, but as a platform to meet the needs of multiple business units, departments or agencies both internal and external. These needs can be met through a variety of architectural approaches including installation profiles...
